At first glance, it is a bland mid-size sedan, but upon driving it, I was surprised by all of the fun it was. The exterior styling is a bit off-proportion, but it has a slightly aggressive tinge to it. The pointed windows make for a cool look and better lateral visibility, but the A pillar impedes cornering visibility. The rear window is at such an angle that backing takes a good eye. The interior is surprisingly roomy, but the finishes are a tad bit plastic-y and cheap feeling. I love the lighting scheme-it is lit in red throughout. The 3.5L V6 provides 200 horsepower and 220 ft lb of torque, and that is plenty for a 3400 pound car. It is pretty quick, and it is good on gas. All of the people who drive it have lead feet, and the average mileage lingers around 26 to 27. The suspension (even on the base model) is just comfortable enough to be bearable on longer trips, but it is nice and tight around corners. The 4 speed automatic transmission (after the dealer rebuilt it due to a factory flaw) shifted smoothly, even under heavy throttle. The factory stereo system left me wanting more. The CD player broke, so now all we have is radio. (That would not be a big deal if we didn't live in the middle of nowhere and have 2 crappy radio stations...) The rear legroom was bearable for even me at 6'2". Driving it is easier for taller people with the adjustable electric pedals. Storage is great with the huge trunk with netted cargo holds and sizable center console box. Overall, a great car for someone wanting a sporty but practical sedan on a budget. Used at the local dealer, it was priced at $9k.

My first attempt at somewhat of a review. :D

I've driven a few G6's at work, and I agree that the 3.5 was a good engine for that car. Good amounts of power and plenty of low end torque.

I've screeched the tires a bit, I must admit. :stirpot:
